5 Questions to Ask
Yourself When Purchasing ID Badges
As a purchaser searching for identification (ID) badges, you
want to choose the right type of product to ID your staff. The quality of ID
badges you choose to supply your staff reflects the type of business you
operate. This is something to keep in mind when shopping for the right ID
badge. ID badges serve as a mini billboard for your company wherever your employees
go, whether they’re stepping out for a short break, going to a luncheon, or
You’ll also want to make sure that you’re not breaking the
bank for ID badges either. While your goal is to represent your company in a
professional matter, it’s also wise to be smart about such purchases like ID
Most purchasers may not even realize that there’s such a
wide variety of ID badges to select from. The experts at
Specialist ID are here to inform you
about these options. We specialize in supplying ID badges and accessories to
businesses, corporations—non-profit and government agencies throughout the
United States. And we’ve come up with a list of questions that might be helpful
to ask yourself when searching for the right ID badge for your company:
Q1. What kind of
job industry are my ID badges needed for?
A. You will be
able to sift through a great number of options with this question. For instance, if you work in the
healthcare industry, supplying all
personnel with Badge Buddies is mandatory. We even have pre-printed Badge Buddies that you can order
directly from our website.
Q2. What type of
job will my employees be performing?
A. This is
important. No matter what type of ID badge you have, you’ll likely need a badge holder. Here, you’ll need to
determine if a break-a-way, non break-a-way lanyard, ID badge strap
clip, or a waterproof ID holder is needed.
Perhaps all you need is something simple that will protect your ID badge, or maybe what you need is
something with a little more durability and a
rigid cardholder is the solution.
Q3. Will my
employees be working around machinery?
A. If your
employees are working around machinery, then the choice of badge holders
should be made for them. One of the top badge holders we recommend is
the arm badge holder. This is ideal for working around heavy machinery. Employees are able to
work hands-free with no obstructions, keeping
their work environment safe.
Q4. Is security
access for entry needed?
A. These days,
many corporations require ID to enter their building.
They typically have this method
of surveillance because the volume of visitors
are so volatile, that it’s best to supply regular workers with IDs that gives them regular access to the
building. In this case, a badge holder like a
lanyard or badge reel that’s easily visible and accessible can work for such situations.
Q5. How many employees
do you have?
A. Depending on
how many employees you have, and how often you hire and promote, it’s recommended to consider the amount of ID
badges and accessories you order.
